I went in for my 3 month blood work today. I knew I was feeling better -- a lot better, in fact. I've been taking an iron supplement (Vitron-C) twice a day since July. Lately I've been regularly surpassing my best running time. I can run faster now than I ever could before. I knew there had been some sort of change for the better.

My CBC today showed my hematocrit has increased a whooping 11.5% in the past 3 months -- from 34% then to 45.5% today. My hemoglobin has increased from 10.6 g/dl then to 15.4 today. My MCV has increased from 75.6 then to 89.1 today.

I'm really ecstatic. I haven't spoken to my doctors yet since I viewed the results online. It would seem I was merely iron deficient, which is very unusual for a western male. I maintain it had something to do with my running 52 miles a week. My doctors were originally skeptical of that claim, but we'll see what they say now.

Bottom line -- No more anemia! Woohoo!
